Teresa Giudice has had a busy week. She and Joe plead not guilty to the new fraud charges in their indictment, and on Thursday night they attended a charity event for Nephcure, which Teresa has been very involved in. “I’m doing well and thank everyone for their prayers and tweets. It means a lot,” Teresa told RadarOnline at the event. “But right now, my focus is on this charity.” Adding, “This charity is really dear to me. Matthew touched my heart, and I want to help that little boy. I get emotional because Matthew is the same age as my children, and I can’t even imagine. I’ll be supporting this cause the rest of my life.”
As we previously reported, Teresa hired a crisis management headed by Wendy Feldman, who reently spoke with E! News regarding the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s legal troubles.
“Teresa and I met through Jill Zarin. Jill is one of my closest friends. We don’t have a working relationship, but she was the one who connected Teresa and myself,” Wendy told E!. “What I do with Teresa and Joe is what I do with a lot of celebrities in crisis management. People going through this need a shoulder to lean on who understands the process. I act as her publicist, as her crisis manager and I’m helping her with her brand. I’ll also be helping her with the show when it starts up again in a few weeks.”
Wendy says her goal is to help her clients “focus on the positive, because there’s so much negative.” With Teresa and Joe, “we’re taking it day by day. This is going to be a very long, tough process.”
“What I want people to realize is that this is a woman with four children who has to play out a sad, unfortunate situation in public. This is a wife, this is a mother, this is a daughter, this is a friend,” Wendy said of Teresa.
